Tootie always enjoyed company and welcomed anyone into her home with a warm inviting smile. I loved to hear her laugh. Family was very important to her and always came first.
Tootie will be greatly missed by all that knew her.

To the Family: My prayers are with you during this time. Remember she is watching you from above and is with family there.
